#WhatLamideWore x The 5k Shop

Guess who put her fashionista hat on and just launched a capsule collection in collaboration with The 5k shop! 

If you guessed me, you get cool points! 😝

I'm excited to announce that after almost a year after I got the idea and started talking to Sophia Ike-Onu, the Founder/CEO of the company, about making it happen, the collection is ready *cue dance break* There are 8 pieces, and yeah, since you asked... they cost N5000 or less per item. They can be worn as pictured, or mix it up and wear with other items. I'm pretty excited to be doing something different and to be partnering with such a great brand, one I already buy from and really like. For my subscribers, this is what I've been hunting at the past couple of weeks, so I hope you guys like it, and support if you can. 

Now, because this is me, I of course did a behind the scenes video to show how it all came together, so here it is:

It feels kinda cool to do something that people don't expect you to do 😂. I'm looking forward to the success of this one, so I can do another one next year too. 

So which is your favorite look? Let me know in the comments, and of course, check out www.the5kshop.com to order - they also do custom sizing and they ship worldwide. There are limited quantities of some of the pieces, so get it while you can!  ❤️

The Highlight Reel: July & August

The Highlight Reel: July & August

A long overdue post, and I apologize!! I have been all over the place recently, and here's what 've been up to. I'll give you the highlights for each month, shall I? 

JULY: A very Google week: From an intimate dinner for select friends of the house, to a 2 day YouTube Creator workshop, to a culture and arts night, all culminating in a final conference day...

AUGUST: Aka my birthday month!! Between shooting my new TV show for Ebonylife TV (Yup, coming soon!!), which I'm producing, writing for and presenting, hosting a couple of events, and of course, my birthday...

The Diaspora Festival was probably the most eye-opening experience I had. The emotions the returnees had, and the connection they felt, made me curious about the way people from other cultures, especially those who have history rooted in slavery, often feel; like something is missing...

Model Citizen for Bland2Glam

You can do anything if you put your mind to it, they say. Just try and see if you'll like it, they say. It'll be fun, they say.

Well, after trying it, I can officially say that a) I am not a natural model. It's just not my ministry, b) Modeling is HARD, guys!!, and c) It WAS fun, but definitely hard work.

A few weeks ago, I was asked by one of my favorite style consultants, Damilola Oke of Fierce and Modish to model the Christmas collection of a Nigerian jewelry brand called Bland2Glam. The inspiration for the looks and the entire shoot was Olivia Pope - the strong, smart side, not the murderous, bad decision making side :).
